Drew Allen looks in over his head. The Wildcats defense completely befuddled him, and Allen has now thrown 6 picks in 2 starts. Not sure Terrel Hunt is quite as good as that touchdown drive he led late, but he can’t be a worse option than Allen right now, can he? Not to get too far ahead of ourselves here, but the math is not good for Syracuse to get to a bowl game after the 0-2 start. We talked in the offseason about finding six wins in a much more difficult conference than the Big East, and splitting the first two games was going to be key. In the final 10 games, the Orange will now need to go 6-4 to be bowl eligible. Again, it’s only early September so thinking postseason is probably the stupidest thing to do (I feel dumber for even thinking about this). But assuming SU beats Wagner and Tulane, it needs to find 4 wins in the ACC schedule that includes the two best teams in the league (Clemson and Florida State). So assuming the Orange lose those two games, SU would have to be 4-2...
